    Seeking Italian census number for 1833

    Joe Tucciarone Newbie

      Since there was no national census in 1833, how can the Italian immigration for that year be known? The number of Italian immigrants is listed as 1,699 on page 57 of this document: https://www2.census.gov/library/publications/1960/compendia/hist_stats_colonial-1957/hist_stats_colonial-1957-chC.pdf  Also, since the nation of Italy didn't exist in 1833, what criteria did the Census Bureau use to determine who would be counted as an Italian in that year?
